    Thank you! I was not giving you a dig . I just know the way reporters can be selective. I had given interviews in the past and words I never said ended up in and words I did say were omitted.

    I did mention the forum when I talked to the reporter! And how quick you guys were to identify it. Too bad it didn't make it into the final article.

    Heard back from the state archeologist today. As expected you guys were right on the money!

    "That is a really interesting projectile point. It is categorized as an Adena Point, and it looks to be made of a non-local stone, probably a type of chert found in Ohio. The Adena culture is associated with a mound building society centered in the area of modern-day Ohio (also West Virginia, Kentucky, and I believe parts of Indiana and western Pennsylvania). It dates to about 2700 to 1200 years ago. Adena points are pretty rare in New England, although they have been found. The idea is that the points and other aspects of Adena culture reached our area through wide-reaching trade networks. It is a pretty amazing thing to find in your garden!"

    I’m not familiar with the geography of the area, but based on a quick search it appears that the (very small) Pequonnock River runs through my neighborhood. I think it’s certainly possible that at some point in the last thousand years or so it went through my yard!
